Pentax GPS Unit O-GPS2

The PENTAX O-GPS2 provides reliable and high-precision positioning data gathered from GPS in the U.S., QZSS in Japan, GLONASS, and Galileo. When the PENTAX O-GPS2 is mounted on a compatible PENTAX digital SLR camera*, the user can record the latitude, longitude, altitude, universal time coordinated (UTC), and aspect of shooting locations onto captured images. Image files carrying the location data can be used to track shooting locations and review location data on a PC. The location data stored on such files also makes it much easier to sort and file recorded images.

By coupling the location data with the camera’s SR (Shake Reduction) system, the unit offers a range of unique, advanced applications, including ASTROTRACER function, which makes it easy to capture stellar images of the night sky, Simple Navigation function, which calculates the direction and distance to a given destination from a current position, and Electronic Compass function which displays the camera’s direction on its LCD monitor with great precision

GPS function for an effortless recording of shooting location data

The O-GPS2 mounts on the hot shoe of a compatible camera and records the latitude, longitude, altitude, universal time coordinated (UTC), and direction of the shooting location onto captured images. In addition to GPS in the US and QZSS in Japan, GLONASS and Galileo can be newly received.

ASTROTRACER simplifies astrophotography

When mounted on the corresponding PENTAX digital SLR camera body, the O-GPS2 also offers the advanced ASTROTRACER function,** which couples the unit with the camera’s SR (Shake Reduction) system for the effortless tracing and photography of celestial bodies. The unit calculates the movement of stars, planets, and other bodies using the latitude obtained from the location data and the camera’s alignment data (horizontal and vertical inclinations and aspects) obtained from its magnetic and acceleration sensors, then shifts the camera’s image sensor in synchronization with the movement of the objects.*** In the resulting image, stars and other bodies are captured as solid points rather than blurry streaks, even during extended exposures. It also makes astrophotography much simpler, as it requires only a tripod and eliminates the need for an additional accessory such as an equatorial telescope.

In addition to the normal ASTROTRACER: Type 1, ASTROTRACER: Type 2, available only when the O-GPS2 is used with the PENTAX K-3 Mark III, makes the image sensor follow the movement of the celestial body at half the speed of the Type 1. The photographer can suppress the flow of the landscape on the ground and shoot both the stars and the landscape in a well-balanced manner.

** This function is available only when the O-GPS2 is mounted on a PENTAX digital SLR camera body equipped with a SR system.

Simple Navigation calculates location data for destinations

The O-GPS2 offers a Simple Navigation function, which calculates the direction and distance to a given destination from the current position. The user can either locate destinations using location data stored on recorded images or register and/or assign them by uploading location data created on a PC.

Electronic Compass function indicates and records direction

The O-GPS2 has an Electronic Compass function which displays the camera’s direction on its LCD monitor with great precision. Using its magnetic sensor and the location data, the unit indicates the aspect in relation to the true north. The user can also record directional data on captured images.

Pentax K-3 Mark III Monochrome Camera Body (Black)

Monochrome-specific CMOS image sensor

The PENTAX K-3 Mark III Monochrome incorporates a monochrome-specific, APS-C-format CMOS image sensor free of an AA (anti-aliasing) filter with approximately 25.73 effective megapixels. Typical color image sensors are designed to receive light passing through red (R), green (G), and blue (B) color filters, so each pixel detects only one color data component. To compose a monochrome image, color sensors must convert color data into monochromatic data by interpolating the color data they collect. The new monochrome-specific image sensor, however, can faithfully reflect the brightness data obtained by each pixel in the image — without the interpolation process — to produce extra-fine monochromatic expression, in images high in resolution and rich in gradation.

Image quality exclusively designed for monochrome photography

The image quality produced by the original PENTAX K-3 Mark III was thoroughly reevaluated and totally redesigned to optimize the imaging characteristics of the new monochrome-specific image sensor. The result is a highly sensitive expression with a natural bokeh (defocus) effect, rich gradation, and extra-fine sharpness — an image only the monochrome-specific image sensor can deliver.

A selection of monochrome-specific finishing touches

The PENTAX K-3 Mark III Monochrome offers three Custom Image modes exclusively designed for monochrome photography to provide distinctive finishing touches. In addition to Standard mode, it also provides Hard mode to produce high-contrast images, and Soft mode to create high-key, low-contrast images. Each mode provides minute adjustments of parameters such as tone, key, contrast, and sharpness, allowing the photographer to personalize images for the desired finishing touch.

Exterior design reflecting the monochrome photography concept

The concept of monochrome photography is evident throughout the PENTAX K-3 Mark III Monochrome camera body, from the white backlight illumination on the LCD data panel positioned on its upper panel, to the “Monochrome” lettering printed on the upper-left shoulder of the back panel, and the SR (Shake Reduction) logo finished in silver. The camera’s user interface menu features a black-and-white color scheme as default, while the icons printed on buttons and switches across the camera’s exterior are finished in three shades of gray.

Note: Since the PENTAX K-3 Mark III Monochrome is solely designed for black-and-white photography, some of its features and functions may differ from those of the PENTAX K-3 Mark III.
